Michael. I disagree. If done rationally, raising taxes would be the best thing the Republicans could do. You can raise taxes 20 - 50% on most of the country without affecting the wealth of the nation as a whole. For example, the gambling industry creates no net wealth. It merely redistributes it. Go ahead and tax them all you want. Others in this category include actors, stock brokers, hedge funds, lobbyists, football players, union officials, government workers, political pundits and the radio,and TV industries.... Just don't raise taxes on the people who actually create new wealth and new jobs...manufacturers, miners, drillers, engineers, transporters, retailers,....
